I was recommended to Healys by a law firm in my home county of Suffolk for advice buying a flat in Calabria. At Healys I was introduced to their UK resident Italian born lawyer, Emanuela Mercadante, whose training in both countries’ legal systems and knowledge of the two languages and cultures proved effective as well as reassuring. She managed to keep the international costs to a minimum and even when she was on holiday answered my questions. My dream of living in either country with relative ease is much closer helped by Healys, especially Emanuela."
